Welcome to the Office of the Special Assistant to the Chancellor for Assessment
It is the mission of the office of the Special Assistant to the Chancellor for Assessment to coordinate the university-wide assessment and planning system designed to enhance the process of institutional effectiveness and accreditation; and oversees the institutional research activities of the university. The Special Assistant also serves as the accreditation liaison and works with offices across the campus and with the regional accrediting body (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools-SACS) to implement and maintain accreditation changes.
Our core values reflect the core values of the university:
- Accountability - Being responsible for our actions is part of the Elizabeth City State University. Administration, faculty, staff and students
endeavor to continue to expand on the Quality already in existence at the university;
- Diversity - Diversity of viewpoints, experiences, and backgrounds are critical tools of a quality education in our global marketplace;
- Excellence - Excellence is the measure for teaching, learning, and service to the university community; and
- Preparing students holistically - the full measure of personal, professional, and social development of our students, faculty, and staff is an integral part of the ECSU philosophy: "to live is to learn."
Through the university assessment and planning cycle we work as a team with all campus units to assess all academic programs, academic support programs and all administrative units to understand where we are as a campus and to use that information to take the steps needed in order to ensure continuous improvement.
On behalf of the Office of the Special Assistant to the Chancellor for Assessment, the Office of Institutional Assessment and the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), we appreciate the opportunity to serve the ECSU community. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Flora Brown at 252-335-3367.
